    Description

    Double Action Comics #2 Cover Only (DC, 1940). This is the cover only to Double Action Comics #2, named one of the 20 rarest Golden Age books (a Gerber "10") by Comic Book Marketplace. Only seven copies of this rare book are said to exist. The original "guts" of this book were carefully removed approximately 25 years ago, and married to a NM file copy cover, discovered in the estate of a former DC publisher. The book originally contained all original pre-Action #1 DC stories that included Dr. Occult by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster and were printed in black and white. The front cover has the appearance of a FN/VF copy (a 3" crease on the bottom right corner keeps it from grading higher), but a 1.5" tear on the back makes the overall grade of the cover VG/FN. Overstreet 2013 GD 2.0 value for complete book = $2,100.
